During production, as many as 30 flatbeds may move through this area per day. Once the trucks are parked, mill workers load steel coils on one side of the road, and the trucks then move to the other side of the road where the drivers tarp the load.

Once the dirt has been proven to meet acceptable radiation limits, it is removed from large piles with front-end loaders and transported to several gondola style railcars lined with plastic. After the railcars are full, workers climb ladders and enter the railcars.
